"HELLO ! HELLO ! WHO'S YOUR LADY FRIEND ?"
From The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle
(Words by Worton David, Bert Lee / Music by Harry Fragson, 1915)
Sung by Chorus, danced by Fred Astaire - 1939
Jeremiah Jones, a ladies' man was he,
Every pretty girl he loved to spoon.
Still he found a wife along beside the sea,
Went to Margate for the honeymoon.
But when he strolled along the promenade
with his little wife just newly wed,
He got an awful scare when someone strolling there
Came up to him and said:
"Hello! Hello! Who's your lady friend?
Who's the little girl by your side?
I've seen you with a girl or two.
Oh! Oh! Oh! I'm (I AM) surprised at you.
Hello! Hello! Stop your little games.
Don't you think your ways you ought to mend?
It (This) isn't the girl I saw you with at Brighton.
Who? Who? Who's your lady friend?
